I had to look her up - had not heard of her before. She obviously knows what she is doing!

Oh how I wish I could find a quality shoemaker in Atlanta. cry.gif

Yes - one can order bespoke shoes from many places - but I want to have the experience of being close at hand to participate in the process.

Congratulations to you - I predict you will wear them for MANY years.

FAIL. Proportions all wrong and book matching of hide also clashes.

They are Gravati for Wilkes Bashford. Poasted a while back in the WAYW Shoo/Boot thread, but I figured the x-post was necessary.

Very necessary. I love croco in loafers, the best thing.

If love, what with and for when?

Love and would wear with pretty much everything but a suit.

 

Couple of pictures of my one pair of crocodile loafers by Peter Millar. Pics taken outside to try and get the true color of the shoes.
